Mocha Brownie Stop Me Now

Many people declare theirs to be the very best brownie recipe. I make no such claim. I mean, how could I prove it? So while it may not be the best, this one is entirely appropriate for a coffee kind of day.

You need:

200g dark chocolate (the better, the better, if you know what I mean)
200g unsalted butter
1/2 cup strong black coffee
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
1/3 cup cocoa
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Grease and line a 20x30cm baking tray. In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate and butter over low heat. Stir through the coffee.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, cocoa, flour and baking powder until it's a sludgy mess.

Add the melted chocolate mixture and stir well.

Pour into your baking tray. Ignore lumpy evidence of your failure to sift cocoa. Bake for 50 minutes.

Try to wait till it's cooled down enough so you don't burn your tongue. Cut into small squares - it will feel like you're showing restraint even if you eat 20 pieces. If you can't get through it all in one day, it's especially nice, and entirely different, after a night in the fridge. Declare it the best brownie you've ever eaten, even if you can't prove it!
